Check out our client, Plastic Surgery Institute of Miami about Plastic Surgery for Burns

What are burns?

A ‘burn’ refers to an injury to the skin or tissue caused by direct or close contact to heat. As the skin touches a hot pan or gets overexposed to certain chemicals, the cells underneath die, causing damage to the skin.

As a result, the injured skin will produce collagen (a type of protein) to facilitate tissue repair. Over time, the burned area will gradually heal itself, forming a thickened wound called scars.

Burn scars are the result of the wound healing following a partial or full-thickness thermal injury. Thermal injury can frequently result in extensive scarring, which may have a profound psychological impact on the victim, serving as a visible reminder of a traumatic event.

Most of us have suffered a burn at some point in our lives, most often a thermal burn (read below to find out about other types of burn). However, fortunately, we do not usually require medical attention. For more serious burns, first aid is needed, plus potentially plastic surgery to reduce any scarring.

Luckily, Dr. Zaydon can help you feel and look more physically appealing and regain that confidence that you once had. Keep reading to find out more about burns, their treatment, and how plastic surgery can help you recover from your burn injury and scars.
